An essential and cherished part of the Festspillene vibe every year is when the Norwegian Army Band parades to Generalhagen and presents a park concert.
The Norwegian Army Band is located in Harstad, and is the oldest professional wind orchestra in Northern Norwa, dating back to 1911. The band has 29 professional musicians who performs all over Northern Norway. The Band is known for its wide ranges of genres – from classical music to pop, jazz and rock.
The band parades approximately 11:35 from the harbour area and will begin their park concert at 12:00 in Generalhagen.
It is difficult to choose when you are in the candy store. So it is with music. That's why the Norwegian Army Band provides a mixed treat at the season's last park concert. From Bernstein's Candide overture to Khachaturian's Masquerade suite and a trip to the Karl L. Kings Melody Shop.
